Last weekend produced the kind of results that would even leave Paul the Psychic Octopus baffled.
Are their any shocks in store this weekend?
Here are my Predictions:
Wigan v Wolves
Both teams have started poorly this season and are currently level on five points each at the bottom end of the table.
Wigan are having trouble finding goals this season, failing to score in four of their six games so far this season.
Wolves haven’t won since their opening day fixture and I think they are due a win.
My Prediction: 1-2
Birmingham v Everton
Birmingham have gone over a year without loss at home, unbeaten in last 21 games at Home in the Premier League.
St Andrews has been made into a fortress and there have been only three goals scored their this season, fewer than at any other Premier League stadium this season.
Sitting at the foot of the table, Everton’s season has yet to really take off. I can see this game ending in a draw.
My prediction: 1-1
Stoke v Blackburn
Both teams enter this game of this back of Premiership victories last weekend.
Kenwyne Jones is proving to be an inspired signing by Tony Pulis and goes into this game seeking his fifth goal in five games.
After a poor start to the season Stoke are now gone four games unbeaten, taking seven points from nine in the league. I think they will win this game.
My Prediction: 2-1
Sunderland v Man Utd
Sunderland have had an outstanding start to the season given the strength of some of their opposition, taking points away against Liverpool and Arsenal and beating Man City.
Manchester United have been leaking goals like a siv and are without a win on their travels so far in the Premiership this season, which makes me inclined to believe that Sunderland might get something from this game.
However the Black Cats have suffered a number of injuries to defenders, which leaves them weakened and I think United will win this one.
My Predictoin: 1-2
Tottenham v Aston Villa
The sight of Emile Heskey flying high above the likes of Wayne Rooney and Fernando Torres in the Premiership top scorers table is a sight rarely witnessed (ok its only by one goal, but you get my point).
Things have been running smoothly for Villa since Houllier took over and getting goals out of Heskey is a credit to managerial talent and akin to the feat of getting blood from a stone.
Tottenham had a great game against FC Twente during the week and given the home advantage I expect they will win this one.
My Prediction: 2-1
West Brom v Bolton
West Brom provided the biggest shock of last weekends results with a win over Arsenal, which takes them to sixth in the table.
Things looked bad for Albion on the opening day of the season when they were hammered by Chelsea 6-0, but have since gone on to have their best ever start to a Premiership season.
The Baggies will be in good spirits after their win at Highbury and keen to try and put an end to their yo-yo club status. I think they could win this one.
My Prediction: 2-1
West Ham v Fulham
West Ham finally got their first win of the season against Tottenham last weekend and will be looking to build upon that success against unbeaten Fulham on Saturday.
Fulham are lacking in attacking options with injuries to Bobby Zamora and Moussa Dembele.
I can see this one being a draw.
My Prediction: 1-1
Man City v Newcastle
I was impressed by the way Man City supressed Chelsea’s usually rampant attack last weekend.
With Tevez on form and a solid defence things look as though they are starting to come together for Mancini’s team.
Newcastle are struggling to find consistancy in their Premiership form this season and I can’t see them coming away from this fixtute with any points gained.
My Prediction: 2-0
Liverpool v Blackpool
Liverpool’s tumultuos season continued with a draw against Sunderland last weekend followed by a midweek goalless draw at Utrecht.
Blackpool were a little unlucky to be dealt their second loss in succession against Blackburn last weekend, when they conceded a late goal.
This is a fixture Liverpool must feel they should win after seeing Blackpool get crushed on their travels by Chelsea and Arsenal and I believe they will.
Chelsea v Arsenal
After a dream start to the season Chelsea were given a rude awakening courtesy of a Carlos Tevez goal that put an end to their 100% winning streak.
There was little sign of the side who had smashed their way to victory in their opening five fixtures and I must say I was suprised to see Chelsea’s usually ferocious attack looking so toothless.
The sight of Didier Drogba coming off with fifteen minutes left to play summed up a day the Chelsea team will want to forget.
However, Chelsea have been victorious in their last three Premiership meetings with the Gunners and I think this shall be extended to four this weekend!
